IR spectra for over 7500 compounds, Mass spectra for over 10,000 compounds, UV/Vis spectra for over 400 compounds, Electronic and vibrational spectra for over 3000 compounds. Other data includes gas chromatography and thermodynamic data. ~ from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
Multispectroscopy (practice problems)
One hundred (100) infrared and mass spectra practice problems designed for students to decipher chemical structures. Problems are divided into three levels of difficulty, from which students can either choose or accept random exercises. NOTE: to begin exercises, click arrow on lower right side of site's homepage. Offered by scientists from Universite de Nice Sophia Antipolis (France) and Dalhousie University (Canada).
SDBS is an excellent (free) site offering access to an integrated spectral database system for organic compounds. The site includes 6 different types of spectra under a directory of the compounds, namely an electron impact Mass spectrum (EI-MS), a Fourier transform infrared spectrum (FT-IR), a 1H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrum, a 13C NMR spectrum, a laser Raman spectrum, and an electron spin resonance (ESR) spectrum. The SDBS Interface allows for searching spectral data by compound name, molecular formula, molecular weight, CAS Registry number and more. Offered by the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan.
From UCLA's Dept of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Cambridge Isotope Labs, this site offers practice spectroscopy problems for developing spectra interpretation skills. Practice with 1H NMR and 13C NMR, DEPT, COSY and IR spectra of various compounds included here.
